The Baby Owner's Manual: Operating Instructions, T&hellip by Louis Borgenicht
This book manages to stand out in a market full of baby books by appealing to dad's with it's car manual style. However, all this really consists of is a few different words for parts of the baby's body. It quickly gets repetitive and doesn't really add much.

It's a bit bulky and, since my car cigarette lighter is near the handbrake pointing upwards, the display is always upside down. The first time I plugged it in, I followed the instructions and nothing happened. I unscrewed the end of the device and saw that the glass fuse had blown. Replacing the fuse made no difference so I contacted the seller via Amazon.

They got back to me promptly to say that this was covered by the warranty and they'd send another out. I tried the new version but again,… Read more
